Rewrite maintenance's dependency checkers in Python

an invention by leonardocf

We currently have a set of shell scripts that verify if patches can be properly installed on multiple combinations of base products, extensions and modules. These scripts are all written in shell and are annoying to maintain, as configuration and code is all mixed up. My objectives are: (a) to rewrite all the scripts in a single tool, in Python; (b) separate code and configuration, so that adding a new product/SP requires only editing a configuration file; and (c) make the checkers more flexible, allowing execution from the command line against specific repositories (use case: checking one single maintenance incident before submitting it to QAM).

Use jenkins as openQA UI

an invention by okurz


jenkins is a great CI system (continuous integration) with a plethora of plugins available. SUSE QA uses openQA extensively as it excels in distribution and product testing - not only image comparison (common misconception ;-) ). How about combining both in using jenkins with plugins to act as a UI for openQA?
